Licensed Professional Counselor
Office: 248-669-9500 X 813
Deb Schiffer obtained her Bachelor’s in Communication from University of Michigan, and Master of Arts in counseling from Oakland University. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor. She enjoys helping children, adolescents, and families reach their optimal health by developing healthier communication, enhancing safety, and managing their symptoms with effective coping strategies. Deb prefers solution-focused, and person-centered therapy that develops a partnership between the client and clinician where each may demonstrate integrity, and honesty. Her favorite aspect of working in Behavioral Health is helping each client find relief from symptoms that are causing them distress. She wishes to help them find insight, hope, and happiness, all while having a revelation; recognizing how they can take control and manage their own lives to bring optimal health and happiness. She believes individualized treatment and planning, combined with collaboration from schools, courts and other community providers, helps her to inspire children and families to develop their own therapy goals. “I bring 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents and families. I have managed symptoms of trauma by creating an open and honest communication space. So many behaviors are overwhelming to families, but once we uncover the difficulties with the ACE study, we can learn how to effectively manage coping with trauma”.
